Branches and Leaves Contemporary Sofa Design: Foliage by Patricia Urquiola
Spanish designer Patricia Urquiola designed a beautiful, nature inspired sofa, which she named “Foliage”. The sofa presented at Salone Internazionale del Mobile in Milan was created by the designer for Italian manufacturer Kartell. Featuring a leaf-shaped motif, the Foliage Sofa extends its beauty to any room chosen for display. A thermoplatic frame resembling tree branches supports the seat made from polyurethane foam padding with a quilted elastic fabric covering. As described by Kartell: “Foliage is a sofa with great personality featuring a seat with top-stitched embroidery on four round legs. Cosy and soft, Foliage offers two roomy seats. The top-stitching runs over the entire surface and on the back too making the sofa a standalone piece that can be placed even in the centre of a room and seen from all sides.”Foliage by Patricia Urquiola is available in many colour combinations: red fabric – cream frame; cream fabric – acid green frame; green fabric – black frame; petrol blue fabric – hazelnut frame; sugar bag blue fabric – red frame; black fabric – cream frame; sand fabric – cream frame and acid green fabric – red frame.
